There is a small ferry that sails from a pier next to the New England Aquarium every 20-30 minutes, and the 10 minute ride to the Charlestown Navy Yard (free if you have the weekly Charlie Card) is most enjoyable. From the Yard, you have...More

Stayed at the constitution hotel and took a night stroll along the Old Navy Yard to enjoy the city of Boston on a calmer level. Safe to say we were not disappointed with the view.

Charlestown
Charlestown’s hilly roads, narrow streets and gaslight

Follow the Freedom Trail over the Washington St bridge
from the North End or take the scenic water locks to
Paul Revere Park. Walk through City Square and stroll
down cute Main street, wandering up the windy
residential streets to Monument Square, where you can
learn about the city’s history along with a great view
